The banner hanging in the front of the sanctuary represents the wilderness, reminding us of the forty days that Jesus spent there, fasting and being tempted by the devil.
The palms are for Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. And the purple, the color of royalty is a reference to Christ the King. The variety of purples and the black lettering remind us of the pain, suffering and passion that we remember as we pray during this season.
Bordering the banner is the color of white that represents the anticipation of the Easter season.
Sacrament of Baptism
The Sacrament of Baptism will be administered to Grayson Russell Sanderson who was born on November 15, 2017 in Rutland, Vermont.
He is the son of Brett Allen Sanderson and Jamie Williams Sanderson.
The godparents are Russell and Karly Cararra.

All are encouraged to help to decorate our Church as we celebrate and glorify our Risen Lord.
One Great Hour
Our offering makes the love of Christ real for individuals and communities around the world who suffer from disaster, conflict, or poverty.
One Great Hour of Sharing ministries reach people worldwide, including the United States. Together we provide disaster relief, health care, education, job training, shelter, schools clean water, and food.
Our offering to One Great Hour of Sharing helps meet the needs that make the headlines and needs that headlines ignore.
We give to this ministry on Palm Sunday (March 25), but the good work done by our gifts gives life again, and again, and last much longer. An offering envelope is provided for your convenience.
